New Year’s Wishes

Colorful flowers

I took these photos at a flower shop in Zurich last fall.

I love flower shops, because they’re changing works of art. Each morning, the florist looks at colors, shapes, and composition, and arranges what she has.

I want my life to be like that. I want to take what I have, and make of it something beautiful.

I know this is the first week of the new year. And I understand that this is the time when all the “shoulds” in your life come raining down upon your head.

I’m not going to add to them. Instead, here are my new year’s wishes for you:

That you truly appreciate yourself—your friends and family do.

That you slow down to catch glimpses of beauty in your world.

That you, little by little, day by day, create of your life, whatever you want it to be.

Blessings and love to you; your life is full of possibility!
